Crytek has shared their thoughts on next-gen consoles and mentioned that they will be much more PC driven. The consoles are made using PC architecture and it’s something that’s done to make it easier for game developers to develop games.
Furthermore, the switch to PC architecture will benefit PC as well when it comes to third-party games.
“I think the next generation of consoles are definitely going to be much more a mix of the top developers, they’re going to be much more PC driven this time around,” Yerli told OXM.
“In fact, I believe – oh I can’t talk more about that. Let’s say this: PC developers will be much more comfortable than last-gen console developers. Last gen, the move from PS2 to PS3, or Xbox to the Xbox 360, for many developers was back-breaking.
“But for us going to Xbox 360, we had to work backward, we had to bring down all our technology to make it happen. As opposed to finding ourselves in that situation with today’s PC… I’m already talking too much.”
